It’s our last week of the water challenge which means hopefully you’ve gotten into a really good habit of drinking your 8 glasses of water by now. And to celebrate the end of the water challenge, Jessica, Molly and I are doing a big giveaway (including this hydroflask bottle) for you gals so make sure you head to the bottom of this post to enter to win!
Remember that drinking water (and lots of it!) is an essential building block of good overall wellness. We hope that getting in the habit of drinking so much water this month helps you continue on in this new habit. Below I’ve listed out some of the many benefits of drinking enough water. Keep these in mind as good motivation to help you want to stay hydrated!

Since tonight is Monday, I typically do an Instagram live with y’all to talk about all the things. I am doing a family girls’ night tonight so depending on what time I get home will determine whether I make it on the live or not. If I do, it will probably be closer to 8:30/9 CST rather than my normal 8:00 time. I’d really like to do the live tonight though because I want to talk with y’all more about the Amazon Prime Day Sale on 7/16 and the Nordstrom Anniversary sale + our next challenge!

This week’s water challenge is to drink 8 glasses of water each day + I’d love for you to leave us a comment on this post letting us know what kind of challenge you may want to do next!
Water Challenge Week 4:
Day 1: Drink 8 cups of water + Write out your workout schedule for the week in your calendar or iphone calendar and set a reminder
Day 2: Drink 8 cups of water + Go on a 30 minute walk
Day 3: Drink 8 cups of water + search for a 20-30 minute workout video to do on Youtube (you can search for your specific trimester if you are pregnant!)

Day 5: Drink 8 cups of water + Go to bed early

I’m new to these challenges, so I’m super excited to join in! I didn’t work out yesterday because I didn’t feel well. I’m still feeling bad, but I will challenge myself to walk some today. 🙂
I went to the Happily Hughes blog and there doesn’t seem to be a way to follow them via email so that entry can’t be completed.
I really need to take part in this challenge.
If you enter your email in and opt to do that step, she will manually add her to her email list. Thanks for checking! 🙂 So glad you are doing the challenge with us!
There’s no box to add my email either. I don’t know what to do. However, I’ve already had 2 glasses of water today, so at least the challenge is proceeding well!
